's Solarstorm 1000.
Level III Power Assist Spacesuit
(Featuring Private Vanni Berrios (Combat Medical Technician))
This isn't quite as tough as carapace armor, but it makes moving in the relatively flexible mechanical counterpressure suits almost effortless. Segmented trauma plates and limb armor provide protection from a wide range of threats. Like most heavy armor produced since the early Cosmic Age on Azore, it comes with a quick-release system that allows you to abandon non-functional elements and run away.
This style of powered armature is popular in the civilian sector (and off the battlefield) as well. It's perfect for moving everything from crates and houseplants to amputees and recalcitrant snails, or for helping lightworlders acclimate to higher gravitational effects (in addition to other physical therapies and skeletal reinforcement.)
Based off of the Sarcos/Raytheon XOS exoskeletons ( [link]

) or a combination of the ActiveLink Power Lifter components.
